Carolyn Savarese of Calligraph

Carolyn Savarese came to agenting after 18 years as a publishing executive overseeing sales, marketing, legal affairs, business development, and domestic and international licensing, working on behalf of such authors as Elizabeth Warren, Samantha Power, Henry Louis Gates, George Soros, and Rick Steves.   

She’s negotiated newsworthy deals at European book fairs, established and run a London office for the Perseus Books Group, and helped develop that company’s platform and polices in eBooks, negotiating directly with Amazon, Apple, and Google on behalf of all Perseus imprints, as well as their 400 independent distribution clients.  

Her client list includes U.S. Representative Katie Porter whose memoir, I Swear: Politics Is Messier than My Minivan, was an instant New York Times Bestseller; privacy and media law expert Amy Gajda whose Seek & Hide: The Tangled History of the Right to Privacy was a 2022 New York Times Notable Book of the Year; and MIT Atmospheric Scientist Susan Solomon whose forthcoming book, Solvable: How We Repair Our Planet, draws on her work with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an effort awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.

What she is seeking: She's looking for writers who can tell a great story on subjects that matter, whether personal or political, historical or scientific, cultural or culinary. She is also keen to develop branded content in health, food, arts, culture, lifestyle and design.

How to submit: Please send a query letter to submissions@calligraphlit.com with a brief synopsis of your work and a short bio, along with 25 pages of sample material in the body of the email (no attachments will be opened).
